1.1 General notes
'PT' stands for Power Transfer, which expresses exactly what
the PT series power amplifiers do: they 'transfer' a few
milliwatts of electrical signal power at the inputs into a couple
of hundred watts at the speakers outputs, without changing
the shape of the signal and adding as little noise or other
spurious signals as possible. We put this signal transfer
under the command of one of the most technically advanced
control systems, including NLR (Non-Linearity Restoration)
and TCL (Temperature Control by Limiting). The 'H' in 'PTH'
indicates that this is the 'Heavy' version of PT. It is build with
a conventional power supply which includes a toroidal
transformer, responsible for the extra weight.
High efficiency class H output stage for lowest possible
internal power dissipation on PTH 5,7 and 9.
Protection circuitry against clipping, over temperature,
mismatched loads, open/short outputs and DC voltage at
output.

slew rate.

subwoofers. In addition to that, any PTH amplifier working
in BRIDGE mode can be directly connected to an
unisolated 100V-line (70V-line) constant voltage sound
system.
2.1 Installation
PTH series amplifiers are equipped with two cooling fans with
rear to front airflow. When installing the amplifier, allow for
ample space behind the amplifier to ensure sufficient airflow,
especially when the amplifier is operated inside a rack
system. This enables the amplifier to get rid of its heat and
avoids limiting or shut-off by the thermal protection circuit.
2.2 Mode switch
DUAL mode: in this mode both channels and their
corresponding in- and outputs work totally independent
from eachother. This is the mode for normal stereo (twochannel) operation.
PARALLEL (MONO) mode: in this mode, both inputs of
the PTH amplifier are internally connected in parallel.
Using the input 1 gives identical signals on both
SPEAKER OUT 1 and 2 outputs (4 + 5) with the
possibility of individual volume control.
Warning: this mode does not mean that the outputs
of both channels can be wired in parallel. Never
attempt to wire them together! This will damage the
amplifier.
BRIDGE mode: mono bridge mode allows to use the
amplifiers full output capacity for one single monaural
channel. (See Chapter 5 for details).
This configuration is recommended to produce high
power for a monaural speaker system, e.g. Bass
3
The input sockets (3) are mixed XLR/phone jack receptacles,
which allow the use of microphone or instrument cables to
connect to the amplifier. Whenever possible, use 2-conductor
microphone cable for a balanced signal transmission, which
gives the best results and the lowest noise. The inputs are
wired in standard configuration with pin 1 as signal ground, pin
2 as signal "hot" and pin 3 as signal "cold". You may also refer
to the input wiring diagram on the amplifier's back panel. Two
'Direct Out' male XLR sockets (7) below to the input sockets
are wired in parallel to the inputs and provide easy linking to
other amplifiers.
DUAL mode: connect each channel input to the appropriate
output of the preceding audio device.
PARALLEL mode: use only input 1 of the amplifier to obtain
identical signals on both speaker outputs 1 and 2. The output
levels can be adjusted individually by means of their
corresponding volume controls.
BRIDGE mode: use only input 1. Both volume controls must
be used simultaneously for output level control. Under any
circumstance, keep both volume controls at the same value or
the amplifier will shut down during operation.

All input and output sockets are on the rear panel of the
amplifier. The rear panel also holds the mains cord (2) and the
mode switch (1). For maximum safety, it is recommended to
stick to the order given below when wiring the PA system.
2.3.1 Input connections
Before making any connections, you have to decide in which
mode you want to use your PTH amplifier. All PTH series
amplifiers are able to work in three operational modes which
can be selected by the mode switch (1) on the back panel.

2.3.2 Speaker connections
Warning: All PTH series amplifiers are capable of producing
dangerously high voltages at the output terminals! To avoid
cable overheating, do not use speaker cables under 1.5 mm2
cross-section (AWG 15). The use of thicker cables helps to
keep power loss down and damping high, especially if long
distances have to be bridged. After insertion, make sure that
every speakon connector has been twisted clockwise before
locking it with the swivel nut to ensure proper contact. The pin
configurations for the three speaker connectors are printed on
the amplifier's back panel. The speaker outputs are wired so
they can be used in different ways, depending on the setting of
the mode switch. Before connecting the speakers, make sure
that your speaker cables are properly wired.
DUAL mode: use the SPEAKER OUT 1 and 2 outputs to
connect the speaker systems. The BRIDGED OUT also
carries both output signals and can be used to feed the output
signal to an additional device, e.g. feedback for a speaker
system processor. Minimum total speaker impedance per
channel is 2 ohms.

with earth contact.
Switching the amplifier to different voltage systems is done

technician.

READY/PROTECT: this two-coloured LED indicates the
state of the output protection relay. It lights up green when
the amplifier is working normally, and turns red whenever
the output is disconnected internally as a result of
malfunction, e.g. DC voltage at the output, output stage
defect, or heatsink temperature exceeding 90°C. After
turning the amplifier on, this LED will remain red for about
5 seconds until the internal supply voltages have set to
their normal values.
PARALLEL mode: same wiring as DUAL mode, but with
identical signals on all outputs. Minimum total speaker
impedance per channel is 2 ohms.
SIGNAL: a lit LED indicates an audio signal present at the
channel's output. Threshold level is +10 dBV.
BRIDGE mode: BRIDGED OUT speaker connection is done by
using standard Speakon cables. Make sure that there is no
ground connection for pins 2+ and 2- on your Speakon plug.
The OUT 1 socket can be used to feed the output signal to an

nonlinearity conditions inside the amplifier caused by
overdrive, overload or defect and keeps the signal shape
unaltered under any circumstances.
The NLR circuit keeps signal shape distortion under 5%
and thus guarantees a clean sound and effective speaker
protection.
TCL: indicates signal limiting as a result of heat sink over
temperature (above 80°C). This helps to prevent the
triggering of the internal thermal shut-off circuit, which
would step in at 90°C heat sink temperature as a final
safeguarding measure. TCL becomes only active when
the regular cooling mechanism fails to work properly, e.g.
by a dirty heat sink, or obstructed air-flow. A lit TCL LED
should always be taken as a sign to check for sufficient
cooling air supply.
connected to chassis ground. In a perfect world it would be
possible to simply connect the sleeves of the signal cables to
pin 1 at both ends of the cable. This would in effect make the
cable screen an extension of the chassis between the two
interconnected pieces of equipment and provide for perfect LF
and HF screening of the audio signals.
Problem however is that some equipment use badly organised
internal grounding and will generate hum and buzz because of
earth currents flowing through the internal signal ground. In
such case it is necessary to stop the earth currents from
flowing by disconnecting pin 1 from the sleeve. Use the
figures below as a guidance to solve problems with hum or
buzz.
4. Grounding
For maximum performance we recommend the use of two
conductor shielded cable for making input connections.
Because the shield does not carry audio signal, interference
between signal current and audio current is minimised in this
way. While wiring up your system take following important
points into consideration:
1. Never use a ground lift adapter on the mains feed. The
isolation system of this product takes into account that the
chassis is connected to earth at all times. This product will
become unsafe if the chassis is disconnected from earth.
2. Most installations
use a mix of balanced and
unbalanced connections with a variety of equipment being
connected. In case you experience a hum or buzz
problem, do not be afraid to experiment.
